Let's pack our bags!
This activity combines a child's ability to match words as well as to match images and can be adapted to become a great fine motor activity!
Children match the label/flag to the correct suitcase and then find the matching flag 'bag tag' and attach it!
This activity can be used as a cut and paste – but we have laminated it and use it a few different ways…. (pictures are included in pdf).
One way was to use a snap setter and snaps and have the students snap on the bag tag and Velcro the label/flag.
Another was using Velcro both for the label and the bag tag
Finally, we used a Velcro/paper clip version (paper clips make a great thumb opposition activity for fine motor skills needed in pencil grasp, buttoning, shoe tying, and zippers).
Once the students become proficient – I take away the label/flags and just have them match the bag tags – this makes for a great assessment to see if they can match the correct flag with the correct country!
This set includes 16 suitcases, 16 label/flags and 16 bag tags
Featured countries include CANADA - GERMANY - MEXICO - JAPAN – ENGLAND – BRAZIL – SPAIN – AUSTRALIA – CUBA – SWITZERLAND – CHINA – UKRAINE - FRANCE – UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – PHILIPPINES - ARGENTINA , but we are happy to customize as you prefer.
